BEACON – Through a deal spearheaded by Scenic Hudson, the City of Beacon can become the owner of a beautiful 50-acre property with an Olympic-size swimming pool, theater, gym and other impressive amenities – for only $550,000. The arrangement also would prevent the historic wooded property, with legendary Mount Beacon as its backdrop, from being lost to inappropriate development.
Scenic Hudson's first-ever parks festival on Saturday, Aug. 25 was a big success, drawing over 200 people to three of our parks for a day of food, fun and music. Thanks to everyone who participated.
See our PHOTO GALLERY for festival highlights.
